So here we are, a little over halfway through the year and (hopefully!) about halfway through with Project Life 2013. Have you been able to keep up?
1. I like an eclectic (not perfectly matching) look with a color scheme that pulls it all together. Each week, I take my color cues from my premade weekly title cards. I try to aim for 3 colors per week. If my card doesn't have 3 colors, I just pick 1 or 2 colors and make that my color scheme. This helps me pick embellishments, journaling cards, and filler cards. It helps me make each week look pulled together, without perfectly matching.
3. Whenever I get a new embellishment or sticker pack, I keep it on my desk in this cute little ceramic berry bowl. It reminds me to use new items and keeps my pages fresh.
2. My process has changed slightly, but is helping me get things done in a timely manner. I mostly print 3x4 pictures, and usually just print them instead of using my post-it note method. I use different pocket pages each week. I slip in my weekly title card, preferably on the left side. Then, I lay the pictures out on the back of last week's pocket page and on the back inside cover of the album. I just move them around until I feel like the two-page spread is balanced. Next I add in journaling cards where they're needed. Then I add in quote/filler cards in any empty spots. Sometimes I embellish cards with sequins or enamel dots or something. I also like to add a simple sticker to a patterned card to make a filler card without words. Then I go get a pocket page that will work for the right page. I round all my corners, add journaling, add other embellishments, then slip them into my pocket pages. Done!
4. I still use the Momento app and a notebook to keep up with what happens each week. I've started using a binder clip to keep up with tickets, receipts, and other 'stuff' that I want to add to that week.
If you have a tip to share, I'd love to hear it! Add it to the comments!
